It's the focussing ring. It allows you to focus, if the camera has manual focusing active. Usually though, you'll be using autofocus.

I assume by your question you do not have the camera manual and if that is the case the extensive menu options available on the E510 are probably going to give you some trouble so here is a link to a manual in PDF format as well a quick start guidehttp://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_support_manuals.asp?id=1295
